What is Palliative Care

Tweed Palliative Support


Palliative care is the provision of end-of-life care including the support of physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs of a patient and their family.

The aim of palliative care is to manage people’s symptoms such as pain and to help them find peace and dignity in the last days or weeks of their life. Palliative care can be provided in a hospice, hospital, nursing home or in a person’s own home.

Tweed Palliative Support provides Home Hospice care and Wedgetail Retreat provides live-in Hospice care (see Services) that is provided free or donation-based. A referral is not required.

Please contact us so that we can assess your palliative care needs.
